I got this lens in a hurry before my 2 week long trip, so apparently I did not do a great job of researching. I read bunch of reviews and comments in forums but apparently not from a D40x user. I thought with the AF lens I would get the autofocus, but it turned out that the lens did not have the focus motor in it, so I cannot autofocus with my Nikon D40x. However, it let me learn how to manual focus, and learn to how to make sure what I want to focus is in focus. It is great in low light situations. I was in historical places, they were dark and most of the time flash was not allowed. So I switched to 1.8 f number and took really good pictures. I am getting used to manual focus. It is a great lens for the price but you need to pay attention to the manual focus deal.

I have a Nikon D5000 and although this lens works with my camera, the autofocus does not work. NOT a huge deal, as it's not hard to manually focus, but when taking a lot of pictures it can be a little cumbersome! For the price, it's not a bad purchase...
